Ladies and Gentlemen! My name is Glimmar and I have great pleasure in presenting to you my dark, alternative, Victorian sci-fi theme pack...I dare to call it Steampunk ...hence the title of my establishment... 'Glimmar's Steampunk'. If you are looking to build epic constructions in a retro-classical industrial style, then as proprietor, I invite you to waste a moment of your time within. Bear witness to scenes of wonder, arcane devices and even [gasp] 'moving picture shows'! Step inside...
.....Glimmar's Steampunk 64x v11.1 for 1.5.1/1.5.2
It's been a long time in the making, and it's been around since the middle of 2010 on the Texture Pack Section of the Minecraft Forums...making it one of the oldest texture packs still supported by it's original creator...me...Glimmar!
When using this pack, think like a 'megalomaniac' and dominate your world with cast iron, brass, copper, marble, tile, stone, brick and concrete! Many of my blocks and some paintings are animated, not just decoratively so, but in such a way as to make them useful for large scale builds...rotating wheels, cogs, flowing pulses of arcane energy, control panels, stained glass and much more. All the things you need to bring a secret lair, dirigible, nautilus submarine, battleship, fortress, city...your empire...to life!
.....Do I Need Flying Goggles?
...If you're currently flying rather high and not in a pressurized cabin...get them on now, man! What were you thinking?! ...Pish posh! You don't need them to survive this pack. Just because the theme is Steampunk, doesn't mean it's all brass machines and cogs...though you'll certainly find plenty of those here. This pack also contains a very large collection of random plants and foliage and many classical, architectural 'connected textures' to make your retro blocky world as believable as can be.
In addition, I've worked hard to make textures which look good from any distance...with or without your monocle...and appropriate to the theme's time period, ie. unnaturally annoying repetitive patterns are kept to an absolute minimum, so those enormous flights of fanciful engineering don't look like chequered 'Harris Tweed' when hovering aloft in your private airship.
.....Current Project Status
I am focused on upscaling my long established 32x pack to 64x and most new textures and animations I make are now first made at 64x. My version 11 download is a fully working 64x version for MC 1.5.1, with some upscaled 32x terrain and item features from my original pack and some fan donated textures, but I'm still missing an ender dragon...sorry! It is packed with a large and growing number of animated blocks and 'Connected Textures'. This is very much a constant work in progress and I'm always trying to improve things where I can...when I can. Support for my 32x pack is not being abandoned, but will take some time to muster the enthusiasm to update it for 1.5.1. :(
.....Things to Come
.....Welcome to My Secret Lair
For more information, up-to-date changelog including, latest videos and screens, lots of alternative textures and extra mod support, please visit my 'Minecraft Forums' Texture Pack thread:
.....Using This Well Oiled Precision Machine
Once downloaded, the texture pack zip goes in the Minecraft texture pack folder, and like most HD texture packs, requires MC Patcher to roll with a full head of steam: MC Patcher link.
MC Patcher makes use of many extra custom features I've created - better skies, biome colors, lighting and HD font. Many of my terrain blocks, items, guis and mobs are animated...working craftbenches, pulsing furnaces, flickering electrical items and strange alchemical contraptions! I also support a huge range of 'Randommobs' and Connected Textures, for which you'll definitely need MC Patcher...even after Minecraft 1.5 is released!
.....Please Respect My Work, Chaps

Tally Ho! My fellow empire builders! When you have decimated...ahem... beg pardon... developed the land and built something monstrously epic, don't forget to cackle like an evil villain ...alternatively, just tip yer hat and smile gently with pride.
